Legislation requires Councils to prepare a Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plan within twelve months of each general Council election. The 2013 Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plan, locally known as the Alpine Liveability Plan (the Plan), replaces the 2009 version. The Plan is consistent with the 2030 Community Vision, informs the Council Plan and the Municipal Strategic Statement, and connects with a range of other Council plans and strategies.
The Plan has been developed with reference to the latest data available and with the involvement of the local community and other key stakeholders.
Council hopes to achieve a coordinated approach to improving community health and wellbeing by collaborating with Alpine Health, Ovens and King Community Health Service, the Central Hume Primary Care Partnership, and the Alpine Local Health and Wellbeing Partnership (a local focus group of the Central Hume Primary Care Partnership).
